Today I took my 92 Adroit out on the same trail I've been riding the Manitou on for the past weeks. I've bee the having a great time riding the Manitou but today it was as if someone flipped on a light switch and all of a sudden everything was that much brighter. This bike is just so amazing, no other word for it! The Tension Disk was cool, maybe it made the back end feel a bit softer, not sure. The sound was awesome though.
